Just got back, so I'm catching up a lot!

I find these old adverts fascinating and they are a real porthole into our glass heritage. Well worth saving! Also worth uploading the photos onto the Glass Gallery where they can be archived and enjoyed by all.

Well, for every day that I wait, yet another new piece crops up that intrigues me - another photo was sent me only yesterday that has me stumped - probably another trial piece! So a little more investigation follows. The book will probably be around 100pp and the usual crop of pictures.

As you are probably finding out trying to photo those pages is difficult without getting some distortion, but I do have some software to correct this. Of course, the flatter it is to begin with, the better.

Hello,

Keith, is this not the catalogue with the mauve/purple cover??

Not an 'advert' if so  ;)

Keith,

It ain't a problem since the catalogue came out so long ago and is herefore likely out of copyright. In any case the company that produced it no longer exists (not that that necessarily means there's no copyright).

I was just pointing out that it's a catalogue, not an advert. I doubt it came with every item sold that is shown in it, even in those far off days ??? More likely something that was put out in department stores for interested customers, or people wanting to show OH's etc., etc. This was still done up to recent times, when they became more like a leaflet showing one range.

I used to collect them every time I visited stores, now they come in useful - particulary the ones I picked up in my early days of collecting, before becoming a dealer...........no, that wouldn't date back to the one you've got ;) :D

Cheers, Nigel

I have a similar catalogue (it looks to be the same, apart from the fact that mine is undated). I was led to believe that it was one of a batch printed in the Summer of 1939 but never distributed because of the outbreak of war in the September.
